A Critical Introduction to Queer Theory explores the ways in which sexuality, subjectivity and sociality have been discursively produced in various historical and cultural contexts.

The book begins by putting gay and lesbian sexuality and politics in historical context and demonstrates how and why queer theory emerged in the West in the late twentieth century. Sullivan goes on to provide a detailed overview of the complex ways in which queer theory has been employed, covering a diversity of key topics including: race, sadomasochism, straight sex, fetishism, community, popular culture, transgender, and performativity. Each chapter focuses on a distinct issue or topic, provides a critical analysis of the specific ways in which it has been responded to by critics (including Freud, Foucault, Derrida, Judith Butler, Jean-Luc Nancy, Adrienne Rich and Laura Mulvey), introduces key terms, and uses contemporary cinematic texts as examples.

About the Author:

Nikki Sullivan is a lecturer in the Department of Critical and Cultural Studies at Macquarie University. She is the author of Tattooed Bodies: Subjectivity, Textuality, Ethics, Pleasure; and numerous articles on body modification and on sexuality.

Review:

"Provides comprehensive coverage of the relevant issues within Queer Theory and incorporates provocative and highly contentious debates around sadomasochism, fetishism, and transgenderism."

-Linnell Secomb,University of Sydney

"This book is a succinct, pedagogically designed introduction. As classroom text, Sullivan's work is heady with vibrant debate and slim heuristics; her intellectual clarity is stunning."

-Choice
